What Our Manufacturers, Customers and Distributors Are Saying About TMC!
I have been in the Electronics industry my entire professional life in both Purchasing and Manufacturing. Therefore, I have worked with well over 100 suppliers during my 34 years in the industry. Founded by Loren Folk and today headed by his son Matt Folk, I consider TMC to be one of the Top Five companies I have ever worked with. TMC's integrity and work ethic is unparalleled. They work hard to bring the best results for both their customers (i.e. Regal Beloit) and the companies they represent (i.e. IR -> Infineon). TMC has been an excellent partner to Regal Beloit, and I look forward to our relationship growth in the future. Dave Ullmer Senior Commodity Manager-Electronic Components Regal Beloit America

We have been working with TMC for about 1.5 years and I have to say the staff both inside and outside are extremely professional, self motivated and action oriented. The support and follow-up are excellent which makes for a great team environment along with sales growth success. I give TMC a five star rating for the company values, staff and owners as this rep company understands the business model and what it takes to be successful.

Not to mention, they have had the ability to build customer relationships that have been long lasting and beneficial to our business.

Technology Marketing Corporation has proved to be a premier technical sales organization for Cirrus Logic year after year! Over the past 20 years I have held sales management positions at a few major semiconductor companies that were dedicated to the manufacturers’ rep sales model. I attest to the fact that not all rep organizations have the technical resources or management commitment for long term success. That’s not the case for TMC. They execute on their corporate vision to provide value and solutions for their customers. Their sales team understands the importance of representing their customers’ interest with the appropriate factory personnel which is a necessity for creating long term win-win relationships. Their winning spirit, commitment to excellence and ability to consistently achieve their sales objectives is what makes TMC a valued partner.

I have worked with TMC for over 7 years as their RSM for touch screen components. I think the thing that strikes me about TMC is their ability to cover the territory with people and offices. As other rep groups and distributors are reducing numbers, TMC continues to invest in their people. Another key for TMC is that all of their people have engineering experience so they are able to sell a technical product to a very knowledgable customer base. TMC's focus on the medical, industrial, and instrumentation markets is a critical to our sales success. TMC's collection of product lines allows their sales people entrance to many of the key customers in those core markets. We are designed in before most of competitors even know about the opportunity.

Good morning, I just wanted to briefly take this opportunity to provide some feedback on 2 of the sales engineer that I deal with at TMCC. My primary contact(and GHSPs) is Brad Leedy and the guy is a rockstar!! I have always found Brad to be very knowledgeable, very supportive and always very diligent regarding his support of GHSP. He conducts himself in a very professional manner and I have full faith and trust in all of Brad's abilities. He is right in the middle of supporting me on a couple of requests and his usual performance/support is just something that needs to be highlighted, he is exceptionally good and well appreciated by me. I have also worked with Brian Birdsall as well and although he is not the primary account manager for GHSP all of my involvement with Brian has been exceptional. Brian is a first class, top performing sales engineer who clearly brings much knowledge and experience to any customer he serves which I have been fortunate enough to benefit from. You have 2 exceptionally high quality members on your team and I just wanted to highlight my appreciation of their work. In my position I deal with dozens of sales engineers at the distribution and manufacturer levels so please appreciate my perspective when I highlight Brad and Brian as the best.

I have been associated with TMC for 25 years. Strong leadership, seasoned sales-people and best-in-class principles are the attributes of a successful rep organization. TMC has taken this combination to the highest level in the Midwest. They have transcended the rep organization business model by defying the odds of a successful second generation while implementing the global advantage into the local marketplace. Competition forces change and TMC has morphed their company to be able to provide better products and services than ever before. When working with TMC on a regular basis, you will get integrity, aggressiveness and support. As a distributor, those are the key elements to growing sales and developing long-term relationships.

TMC does a great job of working to get NIC Components opportunities and approvals on all of our products on the very front end of the designs. Their sales team has the relationships and knowledge to pull out opportunities from our target customers that will be meaningful to NIC’s bottom line. TMC’s distribution managers, along with their filed sales have relationships with all of our distributors to ensure that we get the opportunity to capture those approvals when they go into production. They have been an important part of our growth in the territory. In addition, I really appreciate the fact that whenever I have an issue, I can speak with the TMC Mgt Team and they always make sure that I am getting answers and attention quickly. TMC is a top notch Representative Company!

This is an excellent time to recognize the contributions that you and the entire Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) have made to the continuing success of our product portfolio. The awards that you have earned, such as being named our Manufacturer's Representative of the Year, only Start to highlight your accomplishments. TMC knows and understands how to develop business within the territory. Your relationships with OEM's, their manufacturing partners and the distribution channel are best in class. Your team understands multiple line selling and has leverages your line card when appropriate to enhance a winning proposition for all. Most impressive is that your team has the technical capability to sell discrete level IC's through embedded systems with the same level of competence. You have driven promotions and provided customer / distributor trainings that have resulted in immediate design wins. As we draw to the close of our 9th year together I wanted to recognize your company as a large contributor to our past and future success.

Just wanted to drop you a line and tell you what a great trip I had with TMC last week. Your team had great customer visits set up and I believe we dug up many new opportunities! You have an impressive and knowledgeable staff, which is rare to see these days!

I have been associated with TMC shortly after my relocation to Fort Wayne 25 years ago to work on the GE technology for ECM products. For almost 20 years, I have worked on several cooperative projects with IR some of which had significant impact on the growth of variable speed technology in consumer applications. Throughout the years TMC has done an outstanding job facilitating the engineer to engineer relationships with IR. Roger Becerra, PhD Enabling Technology Manager Regal Beloit Corp

With over 24 years of my personal work experience in the ever changing electronics industry, and by either working in or supporting the Indiana market, I have known the TMC organization to maintain a high level of performance and consistent practices. This all starts with the examples being set by the leadership and their commitment to setting the standard when it comes to the execution on the principles of integrity, ethics, and professionalism. For me this goes all the way back to the leadership of Tom Heine and up to the present day with the leadership of Loren Folk and Matt Folk. We have multiple key suppliers in common with TMC that support a broad customer base in our markets. Arrow Electronics has a long standing relationship with the TMC organization that continues to benefit our customers, suppliers, and employees.

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how much the Micrel team appreciates Anita's support, guidance, etc. at the major automotive accounts. As Micrel strives to further penetrate the Automotive market (& the excellent offering in ethernet solutions is leading that effort), Anita is helping us get the focus & critical mass that we need. I know that this is a long-term sell for all of us, but we are already seeing traction as we go from the hypothetical to the socket.
Allison Manzke Goetz|Micrel|Regional Sales Manager
Anita, What an incredible job you are doing! In the last four weeks you have claimed 5 design wins totalling $6.534M. NEC is very fortunate to have such a highly motivated professional representing us in Michigan.
Rick Tonis|NEC Automotive|Rep Sales Manager
Over the many years which I have known and had the pleasure to work with the team at TMC, their professionalism, dedication, industry knowledge and attention to detail have been paramount in the many customer success’s we have enjoyed together. Their "can do" attitude and commitment from the top down, which they bring to the relationship is truly that of a partnership and I look forward to the continued sharing of many future wins we have ahead.
John Ross|Computime|Director Business Development
